I have just sold my Honwave 3.8 with the said Honda cranked launching wheels and although I was not too happy at paying 205, at least they worked well. The Honda are made by Trem unlike the ones on ebay at around 135 which are made in China.
I was advised by a certain supplier that the ebay cheepies were a rip off and do NOT carry much weight, well I don't know about that but I do know the Honda wheels work fine with a 15hp sat on the back.

Not really sure. Theres about 3ml play or so and they seem fine at the bracket but its enough to bend the wheels inwards enough to tip the boat. When i swap the wheels over so the wheel face is facing under the boat they bend outwards, and just to say manage to get launched. Not sure if they are light or heavy duty, but the boat is only carrying a 6hp and minimal gear.

I unfortunately bought copy wheels which were clearly rubbish, what's the best way to fill the holes on the transom?

Ordered my proper honda ones

I would try and use the old holes if possible. But use the old or use new, I'd always use a Sikaflex 291 sealant in the holes to protect the transom from getting sea water in it.
